Full description
The tour starts with pickup from your hotel in Salvador (if option selected) or directly at the port. There, you will board a schooner that will take you to the islands of Frades and Itaparica, passing through the Baía de Todos os Santos, also known as Bay of All Saints, the biggest bay in Brazil. Board on a fully-equipped schooner with sound service, a bar, and specialized guides.

On the way to Frades Island, enjoy a partial view of Saint-Marcel Fortress, the only round-shaped fortress in both North and South America. Have a glimpse of both high and low city and the beautiful contrasts of colonial architecture and modern buildings from another angle. Receive plenty of time to enjoy nature and have an invigorating swim in its clear and warm waters.

Continuing to Itaparica island, stop at the Ponta da Areia beach, a shallow and warm water beach, where you will have time to enjoy a swim again and taste the typical baiana culinary during an optional lunch. Finally, after this amazing day, you will be taken back to your hotel in Salvador (if option selected), or dropped off at the terminal itself.
